Haris

Looking in: Doreen, Sunbury, Pascoe Vale, Deer Park, Clayton, Melton West, Upper Ferntree Gully, Altona Meadows, Point Cook, Hoppers Crossing, Maidstone, Seddon, Yarraville, Footscray

25 yo. Recently graduated in electrical and electronic from Swinburne Uni. Continuing my part time job in the catering business until I find a professional engineering career that suits me. Paying rent on time isn't an issue. With my lease at UniLodge over, I'm willing to relocate. I like to think of myself as an ordinary INFJ wanting to realize great dreams. Currently educating myself on the realm of entrepreneurship and hoping to have my own start up one day. While I appreciate privacy, I also feel housemates are a 'family', away from family. In my last 4 or so years of living in shared accommodations, I've made sincere friendships which I truly value. I lead a alcohol/smoke/drug free life. Plus, I find animals adorable so if there's a pet at home, it'll find a good company. And oh, I don't leave my dishes go stray. : ) I have a thing for modern aptmnts/units and I'm not much fussy about the suburb tbh. Happy for anything in between 30km radius from Melbourne I guess. Happy to team up and start a house. Cheers!

Dennis

Looking in: Newport, Yarraville, Brunswick, Moonee Ponds, Braybrook, Maidstone, Footscray

Hi, I'm Dennis and I'm looking for a place around Footscray Park that would take me at most 20 minutes to get there on a bike. I’ll be moving in in the beginning of July. Anywhere will do. I'm from Kenya and I'm quite social. I love playing video games, music, watching movies, reading comic books, novels and manga, meeting new people, learning different cultures and trying new stuff. I'll be happy to respect the privacy of potential housemates and I'll also need my own space once in a while. If possible, though, let’s do fun stuff like taking trips, cosplaying, starting a band, building planes, starting book clubs (haha), attending social events, etc. I can cook and clean. I'll be happy to help with housework if need be. I don't have pets, but I wouldn't mind living with them. I don't smoke, though, so I'd prefer housemates who either don't or do it in private.

Madeline

Looking in: Altona, Seddon, Newport, Footscray, Reservoir, Thornbury, Preston, Abbotsford, Richmond

I'm 26 years old, work Full time Monday - Friday and am your standard clean, friendly, easy going and genuine housemate. I do however come with a lovable and adorable old Tabby cat who is more like a dog, she gets along exceptionally well with humans but not with other animals unfortunately. I like the occasional wine or bottle over dinner or catch ups as well as liking and respecting each others alone time. I love music, movies, Books and can't go without the morning Coffee. I do currently live on my own, so i do have a full one bedroom apartment worth of furniture for those who may want to team up to start a new place or if any furniture is needed in a current place.

Nice and Gay. I'm a postgrad student at RMIT city and looking for a private room in a suburb which is within 30 min by direct public transport to city. Move date ASAP. I'm a bit sensitive guy and expect the same from the house mates, so if you or someone in your house is outspoken, cranky, insensitive or short tempered please do not contact. Can team up with other like minded people to lease an apartment in South bank. Scammers on here please leave me alone.

Sophie

I cook, I clean and I'm quiet. I really need to move out of my parent's house and move somewhere nearer to uni. I'm easy to get along with (I think) and I don't like confrontation. If I'm doing something you don't like TELL ME and I will stop straight away! Most of my spare time is spent at work or writing assignments!

Aimee

Looking in: Seddon, West Melbourne, Flemington, Brunswick, Ascot Vale, Footscray, North Melbourne, Kensington

Hello! I'm looking to join a friendly household that has the right balance of hanging out together and doing our own thing. I work full-time as a social worker, and in my spare time I'm either spending it with my boyfriend/friends/family, dragging myself outside to exercise, cooking vegan food, or parking myself on the couch to watch terrible tv. I'm considerate and respectful of others, and I love having a laugh/sharing dog videos to balance out the seriousness of my work. My other loves include hunting down the best brunch spots in Melbourne, going to a few gigs and music festivals here and there, and baked goods. My ideal housemates are around the same age or older, working full-time, easygoing, and tidy. I'm hoping to be moved in somewhere by early-mid May so give me a shout if you think we'd be a good match! :) P.s. Walking distance to a train station is ideal!

Megah

Looking in: Brunswick, Southbank, Footscray, Carlton, Melbourne

Hi! My name is Megah and I'll be moving to Melbourne for work in mid May (currently residing in Sydney). I'm looking for a furnished private room with a parking space (preferably off-street), somewhere within 30 minutes from CBD. I'm easy going and friendly but also respectful of others' personal spaces. For the past 7 years, I've lived in homestays, shared houses, and also on my own. So I'm used to cleaning up after myself and doing house chores. I've also lived with people from different cultures which I really enjoy. I work full time and will probably spend most of my weekends exploring Melbourne (you're welcome to join!). At home, I'm always down for movie nights and catch ups over a meal or drinks.

Danni

Looking in: Seddon, Yarraville, Footscray, Altona North, Williamstown, Newport

Hey I'm Danni! Ive recently moved to Melbourne to work full time as a paramedic. I am a very down to earth person who loves all things music and food related. I keep active with as many outdoor adventures that I can fit into my spare time. I love socialising but I also value my time to myself. I've had years of experience living in share houses and am very tidy and respectful of other peoples things. Im hoping to find a house on a quiet street so I can get some sleep before/after night shifts. It's also vital that it is possible to make my room dark during the day so that I can sleep at odd hours to work around my shifts. I am hoping to find housemates around a similar age to me (22) who would like to show me the best gig spots, brunch cafes and bars in Melbourne on my days off. Im also down to binge watch TV with some wine in my free time. I don't own any pets but I would love to move in with some!

Tara

Looking in: Kensington, Footscray, Glen Iris, Seddon, Malvern, South Melbourne, South Yarra, Port Melbourne, West Footscray, Kingsville

Hello, I'm Tara. I am 30 and I do some freelance marketing/writing on weekdays, and work in bars and clubs on weekends and some weekday nights. I also have a fitness/dance background. This is my last winter in Melbourne, and I would like a safe place to stay for 10 months to 1 year. I plan to move interstate in March/April/May 2018 to study. But I promise to pay my bills and rent until then! I am staying in Melbourne for just under a year longer so I can work through some legal processes (good stuff). I am currently based in the inner Western suburbs, but would consider strategic suburbs like Port Melbourne or South Melbourne, or suburbs I'm sentimental about (and know well) like Malvern or Glen Iris. It needs to be close to public transport BUT with a parking spot, for my little red Ford Festiva. Prefer unfurnished as I have my own furniture, but will consider a semi-furnished studio. Awesome things about me: - self-sufficient - private, quiet, busy - health-conscious - drug-free, debt-free Do contact me. PS: I share a lovely 3 level townhouse in West Footscray. I believe it is too big and superfluous. I need to live alone so I can feel safe and get on with going through naturalization and passport-getting. The only way I would consider sharing is if it was modern, with 1 male and if I had an ensuite bathroom

Meg

Looking in: Coburg, Ivanhoe, Essendon, Flemington, Kensington, Footscray, Alphington, Preston, Thornbury, Fairfield, Abbotsford, Collingwood, Northcote, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Carlton North, Carlton, North Melbourne

Hi, I'm a 32yo professional that has recently re-established myself in Melbourne after spending 10 years in Western Australia. I'm looking to move from my existing share house to something with a bit more room and in a much quieter street. Generally looking in the north and west within a 30 PT or bike ride of the CBD. I work a regular 8-5 job with very occasional field work away. I've spent the majority of the past 15 years in share houses and as such I come to you as a clean, tidy and respectful housemate whom contributes to household chores. I enjoy sharing a meal and socialising with the household, but am also busy and happy to do my own thing. My weeknights are generally pretty quiet, but I tend to plan quite a few hiking/camping/skiing/family trip for the weekends. I also love travel, dancing salsa and sitting on the front porch with a wine. I'm looking for a small household with not more than 1-2 other people. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or would like to meet up and chat! Thanks for stopping by my profile.

Yvette

Looking in: Kensington, North Melbourne, Footscray, Seddon, Kingsville, Spotswood, Yarraville

Writer, student, cricket tragic and aussie rules fan, loving life in Melbourne since I moved from country WA at the start of 2016. I'm pretty easy going, enthusiastic about life, enjoy cooking and eating healthily, and keeping fit and active (cycle, walk, gym, swim, cricket). My dream house share would be a quiet, friendly, clean and tidy household in the inner west - emphasis on the clean and tidy bit! I'm over grotty cluttered house shares. I'm seeking like-minded housemates who will all do their bit to help keep the house (and garden where there is one) presentable. I enjoy a quiet drink most nights, and would be up for some shared cooking and socialising. I do need my own quiet and private space though, as I often work and write from home, so a decent-sized bedroom where I can fit my desk, bookcase and bedroom furniture is a must. Finding a housemate who's also into sport would be a huge bonus! I play cricket for Spotswood CC in the summer, go to many cricket and footy matches (Sheffield Shield, BBL, AFL) and watch even more on TV/live apps. I also enjoy exploring new places and catching live music or writing related events. I'm currently in a share house I've called home for 1yr+ that is better than many, so I'm not in a huge rush to move out; but I am keen to find housemates and home where I will fit in better.

Zac:: Freelance graphic designer, also doing an online sociology degree at uni full time (currently first year). I like to make art, grow veggies, hike, binge watch whatever shows I'm currently addicted to. Bit of an introvert / extrovert hybrid, depending on the mood I can either be up for long chats and random adventures, or just keen to stay in and chillout with some music or movies. Ra:: Black kitty who likes to chase toys and catch mice. Bit of a weirdo who wags his tail like a dog (not kidding), can't meow (never learned to or something??) and makes a chirping sound at meal times kinda like a velociraptor... He's fully toilet trained (ie. there's not even kitty litter in the house because he only ever toilets outside) and he's very low maintenance – not attention seeking, doesn't shed hair etc.

Christine

Looking in: Carlton, Saint Kilda, Flemington, Brunswick East, West Melbourne, Yarraville, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Elwood, Richmond, Northcote, Brunswick, Footscray

Hello! I'm an expat of the forest covered hills in the Dandenong Ranges and have been happily living in the city for the last 6months. The council has an issue with our landlord so we had to move out immediately. I'm on a mission to find an alternative ASAP. I love live music, camping, gardening, cycling, photography and I spend most of my week nights catching up with friends, wandering through parks, seeing movies or listening to some of the awesome local roots music in a cosy back street bar. I'm a professional at the share house thing and have references but most importantly, I'm respectful, tidy, honest, I pay up on time & I generally get along with everyone because I'm very open minded and easy going having lived with many people over the years from a child. I have a full time 8:30-5:30pm Mon-Fri job as an Inventory Controller in Hawthorn. I'm queer though no one ever guesses & I love animals if you have any. I spend between 4-6months a year house / farm sitting for furry friends when their pet humans are away. If you want to know more, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon :)
